Tour du Mont Fort

Verbier is one of the largest and best known holiday and ski resorts in Switzerland. Many of its numerous ski lifts operate year-round. It also has a cool Bike Park and lots of other interesting and fun activities for the entire family. The Tour de Mont Fort is a 50 KM mountain bike route linking the Verbier, La Tzoumaz and Nendaz resorts. We can ride the Easy Rider version of the tour which consists of 450m of climbing and approximately 3,000m of descending – for the remainder of the ascents we use lifts. Alternatively we can ride the more challenging Pro-Rider version which offers 59 kilometers of riding including 2,263 meters of climbing and descending in altitude without using any lifts (almost).  Most of the track consists of dirt roads, but if you like we can integrate the trip with some of the many single tracks in the area. The top of the route passes near the Gentianes glacier where we can stop to enjoy an amazing view of the Grand Combin, Matterhorn and the Rhone valley. On the way down we will stop for a nice Swiss traditional lunch in the forest to fill up on energy and some much needed calories…
